Coming Up This Weekend
Don't forget that tomorrow, August 4, from 10 am to noon, the library will be hosting "Vehicle Day." There will be a motorcyle, a limo, a fire truck, and more parked at the library for you to examine. There'll also be popcorn served from a little red popcorn cart!
Although the weather is supposed to be fine for Sunday, you may want to stay home for a BookTV (on C-Span 2) special with E.O. Wilson. Here's the blurb announcing it:
A monthly LIVE author interview, featuring your calls
Sunday 12 PM-3 PM ET, re-airs Sunday at midnight ET
Join us for a conversation with author Edward O. Wilson. Pulitzer Prize-winner and biologist Edward O. Wilson has taught at Harvard University since the mid-1950's, and is currently a research professor there. Mr. Wilson was named one of America's 25 most influential people by Time Magazine in 1996. His books include: Sociobiology: The New Synthesis, On Human Nature, The Ants, The Diversity of Life, Consilience: The Unity of Knowledge, The Creation: An Appeal to Save Life on Earth, and Nature Revealed: Selected Writings 1949-2006.
You can join this three-hour conversation by e-mailing your question to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling in during the program: East/Central 202-737-0001 Mountain/Pacific 202-737-0002.
I wrote about Wilson after seeing him on Bill Moyers Journal. He's a fascinating individual.
